Here is a photo I took from my kayak of a lone fisherman fishing from his boat as the sun sets behind him on Lake Superior. Unfortunately I used my iPhone and also captured a giant green orb UFO on the horizon.
For some reason the sun looked massive as it set between the Island and the mainland. I sent a similar photo into Cottage Life where they are having a Photo contest. The winner of the contest wins a small Bunkie. I submit a photo every year and have never won but my photos are used without any compensation in their magazine and Instagram page. I think it’s just a way for them to get millions of beautiful photos for free.
